Step 1: Getting Started

So fun and cute!  Crochet Slippers are warm and cozy for the fall and winter seasons.  I love slippers year around, especially for walking around on hard wood floors.  These whimsical flip-flop slippers can be crocheted quickly and easily.  You will have lots of fun creating these for yourself, your kids, or to give as creative home-made gifts!  This slipper fits a child size 8, but may adapted to fit smaller, larger or adult sizes.

Toe Strap

Take a strand of yarn measuring 1 yard in length. Take a darning needle and poke needle through sole (all three layers) and back up through the sole (all three layers) and pull the strand of yarn so both ends of the strand are even, giving you two equal pieces. Then take these two pieces and tie a knot at the base of sole to keep the yarn from moving. Take each strand and Ch 14 then tie off. After making the Ch attach a darning needle to the tail of  the ch strand and sew to the sole in shown manner, toward the heal of the sole.

Finished! Have fun.
